CTS V Coupe Review

Interesting. It's one fierce coupe, but it just don't know if I would ever get a Caddi. Not sure I like the look. Would like to test drive one.

Amazing machine, just something about rear angle bothers me. Looks stumpy.

Course theres no denying its performance!

The coupe looks funny but I am definately looking at the sedan in a few years. Hopefully I will have the new M3 or 911 to keep it company

You can't deny the performance of the CTS-V at the price.

I saw this car first hand about a month ago at the Austin Car show, couple things about it:

1) The first time i saw the pics i was like "OMG that thing is GT-R fugly, did the GT-R design team lend Caddy thier straight ruler or what?" Seeing it in person my thoughts were "WOW this car looks ALLOT better in person".

2) The numbers are VERY impressive for the price.

3) Interior was very nice albiet a bit "blingy" but the materials and fit were top notch.

4) I for one WILL be test driving one of these when they become available on the lots.

All in all i have to hand it to GM/Cadillac as they have FINALLY made a car that has me considering doing something i havent done in 10+ years...buying American!
Although if i buy one i will debadge it as i cannot stand the coffee saucer sized caddy symbols.

Impressive performance, no doubt. Props are deserved.

I, too, just don't enjoy the looks of the coupe.

Rumor has it Lincoln is going to jump into the fray in a few years, using the GT500 blown aluminum 5.4L block. I looked at the CTS-V but my wife and I weren't real keen on the styling. The edgy straight lines didn't do it for us. But what a great car.

Its a move in the right direction.. maybe next time they can smooth those edges
and work on the wheels some. plus take those chrome out for a special edition or option.
Dont mind test driving one!

I get a "Google: Visiting this site may harm your computer" suspected malware site warning when clicking on that link. WTF? Is the Caddy that bad?

Cheers.

+1 - I'm sure my wife would just love the wagon...

Is there any meaningful performance difference between sedan/coupe/wagon?
